During the 4.0.1 PTR, I tried out a premade Mage and came to quickly love Fire. So I rolled one with the Shattering, and while levelling, Fire is immensely boring due to low crit levels. Arcane turned out to be way funner until Outland, when I got enough points to get Brain Freeze in Frost to make that the more interesting spec. I'm only just about at Northrend, but I'll probably be going back to Fire once my crit really starts going up, but I don't think I can go back to Arcane - you get Arcane Blast at level 20 and the general gameplay rotation never seems to change past that point (though it was, as I said, fun), only Mana Adept which seems to just make you rethink when you use what.

Presence of Mind is a very underrated spell that doesn't get utilized as much as it should.http://www.wowhead.com/spell=12043With arcane flows and arcane potency, it makes your normal AB much more potent and fun. Also, a lot of people simply macro POM into their AB, which I personally feel is substandard. I haven't raided as arcane for about a year, but the rotation is basically the same - but I had enough experience to know that using an insta-cast AB on the run is superior to simply putting it with your main nuke macro.Arcane is a "boring" spec in terms of rotation. The depth of it comes with mana management. Not really my cup of tea, but when it was OP, it was fun enough to top the meters.
